Exhibitions & Artists

ARTS for ALL Wisconsin represents artists with disabilities at multiple venues and community events to showcase and sell their art. 70% of proceeds go directly to the artist. From the annual Art Fair on the Square in Madison to Corporate and Community Exhibitions, ARTS for ALL Wisconsin facilitates exhibition and sales opportunities of exemplary, original artworks by artists with disabilities.

Exhibitions and sales events provide emerging artists with disabilities a boost to their self-esteem and self-worth, a means to grow towards independence and self-sufficiency, and to establish a larger sense of creative self that is distinct from their disability.

Exhibitions and sales events also provide the public with a strong and striking example of what people with disabilities can achieve in creating objects of beauty, imbued with meaning, and valued by others. From this standpoint, this art is an invaluable means of public education, disability awareness, and a bridge connecting the social divide between people of all abilities.

"It continues to amaze me how much my artwork has taken off since associating with ARTS for ALL Wisconsin. It is such a wonderful experience that is a result of becoming labeled as an artist through AFA. I am now defined more than ever by my ability rather than disability."

- Dan Sullivan, AFA Artist and wood scupltor
